Unfortunately, cameras and fans alike caught sight of her mishap; as they came out to see the actress arrive for her appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman in New York.  Amanda went out to sign autographs for her fans and take photos; she then ran back across the street to the studio, where she then twisted her ankle. She followed her painful moment, regaining composure and forcing her smile to the cameras and fans, and snapped pictures with her dog Finn.

Wearing high heels can cause discomfort or difficulty in standing or walking. If you have concerns over the usage of high heels, you should seek the aid of a podiatrist like Dr. Brad Bachmann of Louetta Foot and Ankle Specialists, P.A. Dr. Bachmann can provide you with more information on alternative footwear as well as further details on foot and ankle pain you may be experiencing from heels.
